Viability Analysis of a Stock-Capital Fishery Model
This work is based on C. Clark, F.Clarke and G. Munro (C.C.M) fishery model, [1], where the dynamic is the evolution of both stock and capital controlled by the investment and the part of the capital
Entry under placement uncertainty
TLDR
The main finding, that placement uncertainty alone can cause excess market entry and inefficiency, has been overlooked in the literature and is offered an alternative explanation for competitive blind spots in entrepreneurs.
Excess Capacity and Capital Malleability in a Fishery with Myopic Expectations
ABSTRACT Understanding the process whereby fishing capital accumulates and excess capacity emerges, particularly in fisheries where incentives for race to fish and race to invest are present, and
Recent Developments in Fisheries Economics Research
Fisheries economics stand on the cusp of potentially sizeable changes in orientation and policy focus, leading in turn to comparable changes in modeling and general analysis. Notably, fisheries are
CSID-2014-007 The Effect of Infrastructure on Social-Ecological System Dynamics : Provision Thresholds and Asymmetric Access
For several millennia, humans have created built environments to harness natural processes for their benefit. Today, human-environment interactions are mediated extensively by physical infrastructure
Optimization and Management of Renewable Natural Resources
This paper presents a bioeconomic analysis of a red deer population within a Norwegian institutional context. This population is managed by a well-defined manager, typically consisting of many
The Role of Fixed Cost and Non-Discretionary Variables in Fisheries: A Theoretical and Empirical Investigation
We investigate the effects of incorporating a fixed input on equilibrium profits and biomass. We first set up a theoretical model with an input that is fixed in the short-run (vessel size) but that
Optimal exploitation of a renewable resource with capital limitations
A model of interaction between a renewable natural resource with capital limitations, as exemplified by the optimal investment problem of sheep farming in a Nordic context, is analyzed. The model
HARVEST AND INVESTMENT DECISIONS UNDER ANNUAL AND MULTIANNUAL ADJUSTMENT OF FISH QUOTA
Yearly revisions of Total Allowable Catch under EU policies for the management of North Sea fisheries come at high management costs and capital adjustment costs. It is unclear whether current EU
Linking Natural Capital and Physical Capital : A Review of Renewable Resource Investment Models
In renewable resource harvesting, whether involving forests, fish, rangeland or wildlife, decisions concerning ‘investments’ involve two different forms of capital: natural capital (the specific
